Birth is a documentary-style play based on over one hundred interviews the author conducted with pregnant women in the United States. The cast works together as an ensemble to weave these many experiences into eight womens’ birth stories. The play is funny, poignant, tear-jerking, and ultimately, thought-provoking.
BEBOLD is a movement to help promote and educate regarding mother-friendly childbirth. All proceeds from these productions will go to benefit Mothering Circle, a group of women supporting other women through all seasons of life.
The showings will include a lobby ‘Birth Fair’, a bake-sale style concession counter, and and after-performance ‘talk-back’ featuring area professionals in the childbirth arena.
